A Special Edition Fitness Band For Kids
Fitness band launches are always exciting, but it’s even better when we’re treated to a special edition.
The Ace 3 Special Edition: Minions band is here to promote healthy habits for children. Not all smartwatches are child-friendly, some offer complicated metrics, and others are focused on messages and connectivity. However, this fitness band for kids is specially designed to be easy to use and fun at the same time.
Thanks to a collaboration with Illumination’s Minions, the smartwatch design reflects the cute characters and offers Minions theming in activity badges, clock faces, etc. New minion-themed accessory bands will launch soon, so keep an eye out if your child is minion-crazy!
The special edition tracker features a clear, rectangular screen and a flexible silicone design. This smartwatch is comfortable to wear day and night with a lightweight feel.
Features On The Watch

Fitbit’s Ace activity tracker includes:
- Sleep monitoring
- Hourly move reminders
- Daily goals
- Swimproof design
- Eight days of battery life
- Changeable clock faces and bands
Unlike standard smartwatches, this child-friendly model positions the wearer as the Minion’s “boss,” motivating them to get active with the characters. This watch includes fun workouts, such as dancing and running, to keep kids entertained while moving.
How Much Does The Wearable Cost?
The Fitbit Ace 3 Special Edition: Minions fitness band for kids is now for sale!
This special edition of the Ace 3 usually retails for $79.95, but it’s currently available on the official Fitbit store for $69.95. If you want to save, now is the time to buy.
Parental Controls On Smartwatches

This child-friendly smartwatch comes with parental controls and family accounts. These settings allow parents to approve their child’s connections. The watch also comes with a Fitbit App Kid View connection, allowing kids and parents to review their progress, clock faces, and badges in one protected place.
